Slipped on a tee pad and bent my knee sideways a few months ago. Still bugs me.

I admit it, I've done it as well. It sux and hurts a lot. I always make sure I know where my hand is now...pain is an excellent motivator. I've yet to do it since my last time which was some time ago.

I center punched the top of my hand where a branch used to be on Pine tree and yelped. My partner that I was playing with (doubles) did the same exact thing on the same part of his hand. There was blood but we didn't care, we just drank more beer :D

My last round out my Flick landed in a bramble of small trees and bushes on the 2nd hole and didnt see a branch and now I have a nice scratch right above my right eyebrow.

Climbing a tree to get a disc and the branch I was standing on snapped. I immediately tried to hug the tree to keep from falling. It kinda worked by slowing me down but it ripped all the skin off my left hand. You could see the chunk of skin and a little trail of blood left on the tree. Lucky enough Im right handed. It took almost 2 months to completely heal

I was playing a round with a friend from school and I was walking up to my disc for the deuce putt when my friend decided to throw a 2nd disc because he didn't like where he landed. No 'FOUR' no warning, nothing. Next thing I remember is getting up with blood all of the back of my head. He clocked me with a champion leopard right in the back of the skull... did I mention the champ leopard was my disc?

I broke my throwing hand back in 1999. it swelledup to twice the size by the nxt hole and I had to quit for the day. I came back on Sunday and beat 18 players all lefty with a temp cast on pain killers. I was 14 years old. Does that count for "blood"?

I actually "hit my head on the basket" while practice putting.....I was walking up to the basket, steped in a hole that had grass grown up so it looked like the rest of the grass, and well face first into the basket thank god it was in my backyard and the basket was portable (mack 3 with a wheel) so it fell over with me on top of it......I laughed at myself for about 2 min. before I even got up....I was really glad my wife didn't see me on top of the basket......she knows I LOVE disc golf but humping the basket may be a little much for her..LOL

Just the other day I hukked a drive into a headwind and flipped it over. Chasing it off the tee I ran smack into a garbage can and took a dive.Best thing about it was my buddy was filming so now he can watch it over and over. The only thing hurt was my pride..
